A Patron of Economic Update asks: "As we look through history and the present political culture it seems that it has been easier for the right to organize than the left, and easier for the enemies of the left to throw a wrench in their organizing. The example comes to mind of the nationalists in Italy during WWI who wanted Italy to join the war and even though they were in the minority they won out in the end because the majority factions, which included leftists, were too disorganized to sway the country in their favor. Is there something within the ideology of the right that makes it easier for them to organize or is this a case of a correlation without causation?"
This is Professor Richard Wolff's video response.
